There is a 14' ocean kayak stuck on the so. fork of the Eel just below Smithe grove which is a couple of miles north of Legget. Its stuck on an old piece of concrete block with a 1" dia. piece of re-bar sticking through the hull. We tried to pull it off with Z drag and cable winch. No luck. its in the middle of the channel, but can still get kayaks and canoes down stream going to the left side of the channel. Nasty re-bar in the middle of this class 2 rapid just 100 yds down from the grove/ put-in. If anyone does this run with the water low enough to retrieve the kayak. The owners name is Mark Turuls. Contact no. is 707-462-3663 0r 707-489-5029. He'd love to have the boat back to salvage what he can. We tried for hours to remove the boat, but ran out of time. Thanks for any word or help.
